10 Cool New Technologies You Need to Check Out

Written by Daniel
Thursday, 12 March 2009

Instant-on access for any PC. A netbook with a detachable screen. And a cheaper way to get out from under your home mortgage. These and other creative Web services, software and hardware were introduced at the DEMO 09 conference.

You've probably heard about PCs like the HP Voodoo Envy133 and the Lenovo IdeaPad S10e that can start almost immediately, booting into a Linux OS so you can check e-mail or play some music.

I've been looking at netbooks over the past couple of days. They have one at Target for about $250. I want something that is just about instant on, and I want to be able to browse folders rather quick as well as load (or open) a PDF rather quickly.

I think this would REALLY help me with work. I'll be able to fire up the net book and look up a part rather fast. Oh.. and I'll need to be able to jump on the web and have that access via my phone as a modem. So it would have to probably run window's. But I wouldn't mind a linux distro but... it has to be lean and mean and still be able to teather my phone.
